100 faces: the Harris, Rosenthal and MGA collections

4 March 2023 to 28 May 2023

Through the lenses of over 50 international and Australian artists, 100 faces brings together three significant photographic collections to explore the portrait in its many forms, as well as what it means to build a collection of faces, both publicly and privately.

From celebrities and cultural figures to anonymous individuals caught unawares on the street, 100 faces includes work by Brook Andrew, Nobuyoshi Araki, Atong Atem, Nan Goldin, Katy Grannan, Max Dupain, Sue Ford, Ren Hang, Carol Jerrems, Paul Strand and Weegee.

Curators: Angela Connor, MGA Senior Curator and Stella Loftus-Hills, MGA Curator
